With today's attendance of 26,223, Cincinnati Reds fans established a new Great American Ball Park attendance record of 2,371,103.
"We are very grateful to our fans for attending in record-breaking numbers, and we are anxious to see how much we can grow the final attendance number by packing the park for all three games of the Pirates series this weekend to finish the regular season," said Phil Castellini, Reds Chief Operating Officer.
The previous mark of 2,355,259 was established in GABP's inaugural 2003 season. The club's all-time high mark of 2,629,708 was set in 1976 at Riverfront Stadium.
At the conclusion of today's game, Reds front office staff will be positioned at the gates around the ballpark to personally thank fans for their support all season and for helping to break the attendance record.
